Hi, I've tried everything & read everything I can on this & would really appreciate a helping hand....
I have wine20030709 installed, wine-only, and am running flash mx successfully - only thing left to fix is system fonts which are tiny & unreadable....I followed these steps which I got from the wine docs :
. grab the windows bitmap fonts serife.fon, sserife.fon and vgasys.fon
. extract with fnt2bdf
. convert to pcf with bdftopcf
. stick them in a fonts folder, /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/
. run mkfontdir, xset fp rehash and /etc/init.d/xfs restart to get everything set
. edit the wine config to remove the aliases which looked like
"Default" = "-adobe-helvetica-"
"DefaultFixed" = "fixed"
"DefaultSerif" = "-adobe-times-"
"DefaultSansSerif" = "-adobe-helvetica-"
One thing I noticed that all other files in that fonts dir are compressed and named in some strange format, eg , 5x7-ISO8859-14.pcf.gz, so I gzipped the "windows" pcf fonts, with no more luck than you'd expect...any ideas?
